There is a BIOS setting, 'IGP' only, that can preclude a graphics card from working.  (Auto is the default, and the 730 should be enabled with that setting)  This technical bulletin describes how to get to this setting:  Enabling multiple monitor support


If the BIOS is set correctly, then it may be a cable or adapter issue if you are changing the type of video port (ie. VGA to HDMI) when moving from a port on the motherboard to one that is on the graphics card. 


I do not work for Lenovo. I do not respond to Private Messages for help, your questions should be posted in the appropriate forum where the information exchange may help others. If I helped you, click the 'Kudos' button, if solved, the 'Accept as Solution'.
